The Sun Java SE Release family 5.0 reached its End of Service Life on November 3, 2009. The RHSA-2009:1571 update provided the final publicly available update of version 5.0 (Update 22). Users interested in continuing to receive critical fixes for Sun Java SE 5.0 should contact Oracle :

http://www.sun.com/software/javaforbusiness/index.jsp

An alternative to Sun Java SE 5.0 is the Java 2 Technology Edition of the IBM Developer Kit for Linux, which is available from the Extras and Supplementary channels on the Red Hat Network.

Applications capable of using the Java 6 runtime can be migrated to Java 6 on: OpenJDK (java-1.6.0-openjdk), an open source JDK included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, since 5.3; the IBM JDK, java-1.6.0-ibm;
or the Sun JDK, java-1.6.0-sun.

This update removes the java-1.5.0-sun packages as they have reached their End of Service Life.

Solution

Update the affected java-1.5.0-sun-uninstall package.
